A subjective matter... but I've had great success with the JLT set-up on both the 4.6 and 5.4. They're definitely one of the best IMO. Here's an old article on CAI comparisons with regards to the 4.6:
CAR: 2012 GT500 Black w/Grabber Blue Stripes- SOLD
PREDECESSOR: 2008 GT500 Red w/White Stripes
MODS: VMP 2.59 Pulley & Tune, JLT Induction Tube, Airaid Blue SynthaMax Filter, Painted STB Brace, FRPP Springs, BRM Adjustable Panhard Bar, Borla S-Type Exhaust, Speed Dawg Shifter, 20% Window Tint, NXT Hood Lifts, CDC Dead Pedal, Kicker Speaker/Sub Upgrade, Cobra Floor Mats, 2013 Splitter, SVTPP Wheels & Tires, Cervini Tinted Taillights, V-Led 5K LED Fog Lights, etc.

Avoid the K&N!

A CAI and a tune is good for 40-60 hp.
